The color of the sky at 5:57 a.m.; the smell of a dormant furnace,
revived; the feel of dusty boxes. Bells, blips, and boooooms.
Precipitation is inspiration. Closets are emptied --- long-hidden
Circuit-bent instruments, analog synths, abused vinyl, and field
recordings serve as the orchestra on this release. Best enjoyed on
chilly nights in low lighting.
'This is the very first of Khate releases to be of free nature'
We at JNN have been long time fans of her work, and are ever so proud
to bring you Detritivore. 13 tracks of sheer and unmistakably Khate sound.
If you've never heard of Khate before then here is your chance to taste,
be ready though to be succumbed and addicted.

This is one of the finest examples of using ambient sound, found sound and other oddities to take the listener elsewhere in the world. Breathtaking.

Eat it up
Another outstanding release from the duchess of dissonance. Very carefully and thoughtfully disassembled for your glistening pleasure. I am a big fan of her stuff, and a major shareholder in KhateCo, LLC.

More goodness from Khate
I've been a fan of Khate's wild world of circuit bent music for a few years now, and this album does not disappoint. Experimental, to be sure, but also cerebral and with a wicked sense of humor. Highly recommended.
